Movie Review: Conjuring 2

Disclaimer: So I’m not gonna tell the whole story just in case you haven’t watch Conjuring 2 yet. But, I do recommend it. The story is good, the ending is a bit dramatic and collective screaaaaammmsss!! So thumbs up for this movie 😀 AND—- I won’t be posting anything scary so this is WORK SAFE! XDDD

So yesterday, with my friends we watched Conjuring 2 🙂 If you haven’t watched Conjuring 1, please do so but it has no connection at all but it’s good if we watch the sequel for better understanding of the characters. (imo)

So Patrick Wilson (Insidious Series) and Vera Farmiga (The Orphan) reprise their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren, the husband and wife paranormal experts and demonologist. If you’re not familiar with them, they’re truth to life paranormal investigators and since Conjuring 1, it’s all about their real life story cases 🙂 I have been fond with them since because I find them very cool and they have this Occult Museum where the infamous Annabelle doll is in their possession XD If you’re interested, read their wiki and find their website here.

The story starts with excerpts from their case with the Amityville Murders. Yes, it’s the movie which has many version and one of the famous and most controversial cases of the couple. It’s the same with Conjuring 1 that they’ve also put Annabelle’s story which has a little connection to the main case. I guess it’s the “Conjuring’s trademark” to make connections of different stories. Well anyway, it’s not that bad and it do really has connection with the main case as you watch further 😀

So for Conjuring 2, it’s the story of Hodgson’s Family experiencing a malevolent disturbance in their home. It’s known as the Enfield Poltergeist during 1970’s from Ed and Lorraine’s record case. So in this picture, the middle girl’s the one experiencing the possession.

She comes being possessed by an old man named Bill Wilkins and keep babbling “this is my house and I want you to get out.” Kinda typical for a selfish type of ghost though XD Anyways, what I like about are the scenes every night where basically is the highlight why this movie is a real shit scary. Specially when Janet is being all alone dealing with the ghost and gramps just popped out of nowhere scaring the shit out of you XDDD

After scaring you, there’s are funny moments that can make you back-up from screaming. I like that. At least it’s not all pure scare. (watch it so you’ll know what I mean :D)


And then they go ask help from the couple, of course same as Conjuring 1. But apparently in the movie, Lorraine’s psychic powers isn’t working at all and you’ll wonder if the family’s faking it or not. Media has all over in this case and they’ve even ask for recordings and interviews with the family. It’s quite unusual that the poltergeist is so visible even with people, cameras and recordings around. It’s like he’s really seeking attention but what’s more unusual is this poltergeist  has a plan. LOL! That on the latter, you’ll know how, what, and when that happen 🙂

So the ending’s a bit dramatic. I know for sure it’s not the same ending from the real Enfield case. The spine-chillings have gone as soon they’ve realize the true intentions though but I guess it was okay, to make it a bit dramatic for the couple. It was OKAY.

That’s it! Enough for the story telling and I would really like you to watch it. Especially if you’re a fan of horror genres 😀 It’s still recommended 😀 This is still showing in SM Cinemas so grab a friend and watch it now! HAHAHA!


Trivia: I just notice this but I guess the director’s trying to do a puzzle solving mystery thingy but the demon’s name can already be seen before Lorraine’s Exorcism XD If you’re into details. You’ll definitely notice! XD I find this somewhat cool 😀

So anyone’s up for Conjuring 3? XDDD

Before anything else,….


Last Thursday I watched Sinister with my colleagues in Gateway Mall. It’s just an unexpected plan that came up with “I wanna watch Sinister” and everybody said “Let’s goooo!” and that’s why we watched 😀

We just wanted to be scared XD Hahaha! and the hell this movie really made me scream a lot! Harhar! The story is good 🙂 Ethan Hawke looks so good in here and of course his acting is great 😀 The story has somewhat similarity with John Cusack’s Room 1408 🙂

Sinister – adj., something bad or evil


Synopsis: The movie started off with a footage from a Super 8 film wherein a family is being hanged on a tree, killing them with no trace of the murderer.

Ethan Hawke stars as Ellison Oswalt, a suspens/thriller, real crime book writer who is desperate to make a comeback after his 10 year ago success from his previous book. He moved his family into a new house where the family hanged and died took place.

Upon researching the house, he found 5 home videos shot using a Super 8 film. He watch it and found out how and when 5 different families were all killed with a same link, one child is always missing.

He met a deputy which assists him in collecting details and introduces Jonas, an occult and demonic symbolism expert, to him because he’s been experiencing weird things inside the house (footsteps, automatic play on videos, etc…). He also see an unexplained creature in every videos and a painted symbol. Jonas explained to him that what he saw was a Pagan Deity called Bughuul who is an eater of children souls. He abducts the child after killing the whole family.

Ellison was so scared what was happening inside the house, feeling like he’s being tortured so he burned the films and decided to move out with his family.

When on their previous house, he received an email from Jonas showing pictures on  how Bughuul travels from his realm to mortal realm. He answered a phone call from the deputy which he’s been ignoring ever since they moved out. The deputy told Ellison that he found the link within the five families: Each family had last live in the house where the previous murder took place. By moving out of the house, Ellison has put his family in a curse that continues the pattern.

The ending was the same as the 5 families in the film. They were also drugged and then killed by their daughter while taking a video using a Super 8 film. And then Bughuul took her.

I like the story from first until almost the end but not the ending. I was disappointed because I want him to end and solve the mystery. Hahaha! But I think it was nearest to real life since these kind of curses are inescapable XD But what if they didn’t move out the house? They wouldn’t die right? Because the pattern was you lived then you moved then you die XD Hehehe~ I was just thinking XD It was still great. The scary scenes are important and they did great in scaring people 😀 unless you’re really not into screaming… I hate Bughuul too! He’s waaayy to scary for me! XD

I still recommend it and great movie to watch for your Halloween! *Awwwwoooo*
